Are there any rumblings regarding anything from 1969 coming out this year?

The "I'm broken hearted..." part reminds me of a song from the Who, but I can't think of which one.

Maybe I'm thinking about "Love Reign O'er Me"...

An attempt at the 1971 "Passing By" lyrics:

Somewhere along the avenue
I stopped to have a look at you
said "hi" as you were just passing by

And as I drove you home with me
a feeling rolling over me
said you were more than just passing by (?)

Warm nights, quiet nights
nights of livid dreams
so close you were to be all i ever needed

Somehow I thought I something-something-something
You stay and build a nest with me
I didn't guess you were just passing by

And as your distance seemed to grow
I've come to really miss you so
All hurt I wish was just passing by

Warm nights, quiet nights
nights of livid dreams
so close you were to be all i ever needed

I guess i am still in love with you
I'll always stay in love with you
I guess I'm still in love with you
I'll always stay in love with you (fade-out)

Any idea of the MSRP of this? The first 1000 copies for RSD included a signed postcard.

Bull Moose has a price of $28.97 listed

Watching the NASCAR race from Michigan and they run a promo for the next race at Daytona. "I Get Around" is used as the background music.

Only fitting because it's accompanied by footage of cars wrecking and crashing (getting around).

Does anyone know where the picture of Dennis in the booklet for the Warmth of the Sun album, on page 8, comes from? Would anyone have a copy of it?

Another random one: The only two songs I've caught, and I've caught them both *numerous* times, from 20/20 are "I Can Hear Music" and weirdly "Be With Me."

I heard "The Nearest Faraway Place" a little bot ago. What a oxymoronic song title...
9  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys Channel on Sirius XM on: May 28, 2018, 06:27:59 PM
It kind of irritates me when they're in the double song block - "Let's play two songs from *year*..." - and they play two songs, normally sequenced back-to-back on the album, out of order.

Example: Holland... "Only With You" with "Leaving This Town" afterwards.

Other than that, I love this channel. It sucks that my new car doesn't have a satellite radio in it.

I'd like to see a release of the "Lei'd in Hawaii" album from the first 1967 CD set.

I think many if not most/all of these copyright extension sets are on Amazon to download as well.

I just started their Music Unlimited program so that way I can listen to it tomorrow. They're running a special right now... 3 months for 99 cents.

During the instrumental version of "Wonderful", when it gets to the freak-out/party section (from 1:13 to 1:50), has anyone else noticed that part of "Heroes and Villains" fits perfectly over it?

16  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: The Beach Boys Wild Honey(Sunshine Tomorrow) 2CD Set? on: July 03, 2017, 09:11:24 PM
So I've basically listened to this for 4 days straight...  Grin

I sing along with the album like crazy now. I tried remembering the lyrics to songs today at work, and I could never remember "A Thing or Two", but "I'd Love Just Once to See You" rolls off the tongue.  Tongue

"Wild Honey" is different from 2012 mix, obviously. I used to love the 2012 mix. Now I can't stand it.
"Aren't You Glad" is where everything starts coming out. "Tell me, tell me..." backing vocals are too buried in the mix, but it doesn't bother me. Actually, it comes through perfectly on the desktop speakers I have at work.
"I Was Made to Love Her" is a pleasure to listen to now. I love the bass line following the "yes I was made to love her" (like the sitar in "Within You Without You").
I absolutely love the rolling piano sound of "Country Air"! The way it goes up and down is pure Brian!
"A Thing or Two" sounds so much fuller overall. There's a lot that comes out compared to the mono version.
"Darlin'" sounds so much lighter than the 2012 mix. It's a lot easier to listen to.
"I'd Love Just Once to See You" is a fun song. 100% Brian. Again, a lot more is brought out in this mix. (It always gets a laugh out of me when I start singing it.)
"Here Comes the Night" absolutely rocks! Another song with a fuller sound.
"Let The Wind Blow" is different from the 2001 mix, which isn't a bad thing. I like them both.
The first part of "How She Boogalooed it" rocks! The second part still rocks, but that much less. I wish they included a full stereo mix as a bonus track (a la "This Will Be Our Year" from the Zombies).
"Mama Says" is a short, fun song.
------
I love this version of "Cool, Cool Water". It's different from SMiLE and Sunflower, obviously. I like the echo/reverb (?) in the beginning.
"Can't Wait Too Long" is a revelation. Completely different from any other versions. It fits with the WH vibe.
"I Was Made to Love Her" (Vocal Inserts) are something else. It gives a look into another Brian session. Long version is the one from Rarities.
"Hide Go Seek" and "Honey Get Home" are nice songs. They could've became something else, but sound perfect the way they are.

The individual sessions for the Wild Honey songs are amazing. I love the backing track for "Aren't You Glad" with the horns. I didn't notice them fully in the sing until I heard the backing track.
The live tracks are kind of sparse, but gives us options for end-of-year extension sets. I love the 1970's BB sound, so "Aren't You Glad" is one of my favorites.
------
I love that there is a full backing track for "Heroes and Villains" now, instead of the snippet of just the beginning from the GV box set.
The alternate "Wind Chimes" tag is just beautiful. Almost like a lullaby.
"Little Pad" backing track is awesome.
"All Day All Night" is awesome as well.
------
I can see the "Lei'd in Hawaii" "live" album being released as a RSD Black Friday exclusive. I know I'd buy it.
Yes, "With a Little Help from My Friends" does sound out of place, but I think that with the fake crowd that wasn't put in, it would've worked.
I didn't expect "Game of Love" to sound like this. It's certainly a highlight of this set.
True live Hawaii songs are better quality than the endless boots. I can see why it didn't work as a live album. "Gettin' Hungry" is awesome in a live setting.
"Heroes and Villains" rehearsal proves that the Wild Honey method works with over-produced songs, like "Heroes".
------
The extended version of 1967 Surf's Up is beautiful, hearing Brian sing the different parts before deciding on singing the whole song.
1967 "Surfer Girl" a capella is absolutely beautiful. It almost brings a tear to your eye.

I can't wait for the next archive release!

I would've done what the Zombies did with "This Will Be Our Year" from Odessey and Oracle.

The horn section on the song was directly added to the mono mix, and does not appear on any stereo version.

With the 50th anniversary release this year, the mono version is with the main album, but the stereo version without horns is a bonus track.

I would've included a stereo version of HSBI without the keyboard part as a bonus "alternate mix".

I bought the soundtrack, and I can say that IT IS AWESOME!

Let's Go Away for Awhile is in mono, though.

We're going to go see the movie in a couple hours!

Amazon' price has gone down to $16.59
20  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Brian Wilson - 2017 Tour Thread (Pet Sounds - The Final Performances) on: April 23, 2017, 10:13:50 PM
Having "Brian Wilson presents Pet Sounds" be my first concert was amazing! My sister used my extra ticket, so that was an added bonus. (She's 11 and she loved it!)

I was disappointed at no Matt or Darian, but Casey was a good falsetto, and I know that Darian's playing with the Zombies.

During Love & Mercy, Brian used the lyric "A lot of people getting shot/It really scares me"

My favorites (besides Pet Sounds) were Feel Flows, California Saga: California, and Wake the World/Add Some Music.

Side note: I wonder if Blondie ever gets tired of playing the tambourine... Huh

I've read on the Steve Hoffman forums (and the r/vinyl sub-reddit forum) that for Record Store Day 2017, this will be released:

Dennis Wilson - Bambu (The Caribou Sessions) [2LP] (150 Gram Translucent Green with Black Smoke Effect Vinyl, gatefold, limited to 3000, indie-retail exclusive)

The info came from the EU list, and their price (44,50€) comes out to around $47 USD.

Not Beach Boys, but I heard McCartney's "Too Many People" at a Speedway gas station last month.
